This is my second Victoria Schwab book and i really liked it. I’m going to school to be a librarian, so i really enjoyed the imagery and atmosphere. I felt the scenes were very easy to pictured and the world building was superb.
I found the characters to be written well. I really like most of them and found most to be developed well, with the exception of a few of the librarians. Mac our main character was just ok. I found her to be emotionally weak and largely selfish most of the time. We didn’t actually meet Da, but i feel i would have liked him. The males (Wes, Rolland & Owen) of the book all seemed pretty attractive. I also really like Nix.
I really enjoyed the actual story. It was so unique and written so well. The mystery was laid out pretty good, but i did figure a lot of it out in advance. Some elements did surprise me though, esp. some of the secrets of The Archive itself.
